Autumn is a unique time for our hair, skin, and nails, as our cells are still in recovery from the summer sun and also being subjected to crisp, dry air. Many couples are gearing up to host friends and family for Thanksgiving this month, and it's just as important to prep your skin as it is to prepare your home for the holidays – especially if your nuptials are approaching.

From beautiful nail lacquers ideal for a do-it-yourself bridal manicure, to regenerating lotions and complexion-boosting masks, to a new mascara that will give you gorgeous long lashes for fall weddings you're attending, we've compiled 10 beauty products we know brides will appreciate.
